Psalm 28

The Lord Is My Strength and My Shield

1 To You I will cry, O LORD my Rock:
a Do not be silent to me,
b Lest, if You are silent to me,
I become like those who go down to the pit.
2 Hear the voice of my supplications
When I cry to You,
c When I lift up my hands d toward Your holy sanctuary.

3 Do not 1 take me away with the wicked
And with the workers of iniquity,
e Who speak peace to their neighbors,
But evil is in their hearts.
4 f Give them according to their deeds,
And according to the wickedness of their endeavors;
Give them according to the work of their hands;
Render to them what they deserve.
5 Because g they do not regard the works of the LORD,
Nor the operation of His hands,
He shall destroy them
And not build them up.

6 Blessed be the LORD,
Because He has heard the voice of my supplications!
7 The LORD is h my strength and my shield;
My heart i trusted in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart greatly rejoices,
And with my song I will praise Him.

8 The LORD is 2 their strength,
And He is the j saving refuge of His 3 anointed.
9 Save Your people,
And bless k Your inheritance;
Shepherd them also,
l And bear them up forever.
